Tomorrow my show comes back!!! I NEVER thought the summer would end. Paired with "Chuck" and "Journeyman" it's become quite apparently that I am NBC's bitch on Mondays.
I've decided to let this Web site keep me abreast of what's going on with "Prison Break." That doesn't mean that I'm not going to stop DVRing the show though. And now that "The Biggest Loser" appears to be my main Tuesday night show, I might slide PB into Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. That'll lead me into "Law and Order SVU"
Wednesday is going to be a bit tough. 8 p.m. has "Deal or No Deal" going head to head against "America's Next Top Model" which leads to the 9 p.m. pileup. I'm all about the "Bionic Woman" and I'm willing to give "Gossip Girl" a few more weeks. But I'm really curious about "Private Practice."
Thursday has "Ugly Betty", "Survivor" and "Smallville" all against each other. While I haven't watched "S-ville" in forever, they are going to have this heroine on board so I can't wait to see that. I'm hoping that they'll repeat "S-ville" on Sundays so I can catch that then.
Friday is more "DOND" but it looks that "The Search for the Next Great American Band" might be the "American Idol" of the fall. Saturday sucks because it's nothing but repeats. And Sunday looks dry too. I'm dumping "Desperate Housewives" but then I remember they will have a gay couple on so I might watch for a few episodes.
And that's my week in TV viewing.
And now for some RECAPS! Yep. I'm going to attempt to recap a few of the shows I've been watching during the week. I won't do every show just the buzz worthy ones or the scandalous ones. =-)
The Biggest Loser
OK, confession time. I have a love/hate relationship with this show. I love it because I like watching people changing their lives. I hate the way it portrays fat people. I mean do the guys really have to weigh themselves shirtless? And are jog bras the best choice to be weighed?
That being said, the big reveal of the Black Team joining the Red and Blue Teams would have been cool if NBC didn't advertise it do death all LAST week!
If I had to be on a team, I'd like to be on the Blue Team with Bob. He's nice to look at, totally gay (not that there's anything wrong with that) but it appears he actually cares about the contestants. When he talked to a contestant from the other team after she walked out on her trainer, that showed real class. And then, there's Jillian. I could not train under her. There's wishing the best for your clients and then there's browbeating them into submission. I would not work well under that circumstance. This week, they booted poor Lezlye who appeared to have a really stinky attitude. But I guess I would too if Hurricane Katrina decimated my life.
"America's Next Top Model"
If you aren't watching this show, you should. I'm telling you it has drama, sexiness, craziness and most of all TYRA! This season, started with a bang as they narrowed 30 girls down to 20 on board a big cruiseship. With Miss Jay teaching the girls how to walk and Mr.Jayand Tyra (You must click on this link, trust me!). These new girls range from the cute Lisa to the OK Ambreal to the "what was your momma thinking when she named you this." I'm looking at you Saleisha.
It's too early to tell to see who'll win. But maybe next week, I'll have more of an idea.
OH. There just are no words to describe the first episode but the only thing I could come up with is AWESOME.
When you have a contestant who's name is "Chicken" and you have a WWE diva onboard you KNOW it's going to be a great episode. Of course they have the "Survivor" standards: the bitchy gay guy, the woman who's unprepared to camp, the "I'm going to be the leader but I don't want folks to think of me as the leader, the hot young guys, the hot young girls and of course the clueless. I'm rooting for James because I have him in the company office pool.
